Wednesday, April 17, 2013
Synopsis: Desperate, penniless, and shunned by his wealthy father, Darius Lindsey begins offering himself secretly to jaded society ladies. He hangs onto his last shreds of honor, but he's losing ground financially each month.

That is until the aging Lord William Longstreet makes Darius an offer he can't refuse: get the Lord's pretty young wife-of-convenience, Lady Vivian, pregnant discreetly, and he will earn enough money to never want again. But problems lie ahead when the stunning Vivian captures his heart, and his clients refuse to let him go. Can Darius untangle himself without scandal and offer himself to Vivian heart and soul?


Review: Darius is the first book in the Lonely Lords series a historical novel By Grace Burrowes. I must be honest that I had a hard time enjoying the book. The book has too many plots going on and had a hard to keeping track of the book. The main characters of Darius is the second son and is making his way through society by offering himself to women of society. Can I say –I felt form him but really is this kind of a lame excuse. Yes –he has good reason but man up-The other main character is Lady Vivian the wife of Lord Longstreet. A deal is made between Lord Longstreet and Darius that he would get Lady Vivian pregnant and Darius would be set for life. Yes we have some twist and turns but our two couples find themselves in love in the end but it is still a complicated story.
Darius is your typical historical romance-and if you enjoy this genre try this book. It’s a totally different book and you may find that you enjoyed it more than me. Maybe with the next books we will see that this book makes more since and the plots unravel themselves.

Rating: 3/5 DIAMONDS
